Dyeing fiber can be super casual or super duper scientific. One can spill Kool-aid on their shirt with wonderful results, or one can earn a Master of Science in Textile Chemistry, also with wonderful results. The Kool-aid is relatively less expensive.
On the weekend of September 8 & 9, please join me at Fiber College for a super casual version of dyeing. Here's how it'll go down: Show up at the Drop in and Dye Tent during the Shopper's Boulevard hours (Sat 10:00 - 5:30, Sun 10:00 - 3:00), and bring with you a 'don't be scared' attitude and maybe some unloved natural fiber stash from home. I'll have various yarns for sale if you already love your stash as-is.
There will be two types of dyes available for sale in sample size portions: 'MX Reactive' dyes for plant fibers (cotton, linen, bamboo, hemp, rayon) and 'WashFast Acid' dyes for animal fibers (wool, silk, dog, angora, cashmere, llama). There will be a simple set up and easy to follow directions so you can get your feet wet, so to speak. And I'll be there to answer questions and cheer you on.
